Convoy for a Cure

On Oct. 24, female truckers will come together to help drive out breast cancer by participating in the first U.S.-based Convoy for a Cure, a one-day fundraising event for female drivers and those in the transportation industry. The convoy will take place at Willie’s Place at Carl’s Corner Truck Stop near Hillsboro, Texas, and is being organized by Cindy Stowe, a driver for FFE Transportation Services.
     The first all-female Convoy for a Cure took place last year in Ontario, Canada, and raised nearly $15,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Based on the success and the positive response from female truckers, Convoy for a Cure will expand to four events this October, with three in Canada (Ontario, Alberta and New Brunswick), as well as the one in Texas.
     The Convoy for a Cure in Texas will feature a one-hour ride and will be followed by health screenings, entertainment and prizes. For further information, contact Cindy Stowe at 903-288-0374. Registration and pledge forms are available at www.convoyforacureusa.com.

HTAA update

The recent premiere of Driver HEALTH magazine was a huge hit. The Healthy Trucking Association of America is proud to provide members and friends with this, our second issue of Driver HEALTH – the official publication of the HTAA. Some recent HTAA activities that merit attention include:

•     Great American Trucking Show Exhibit – The HTAA continued to spread its message and help drivers get healthy by conducting free blood pressure and BMI screenings at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. Thousands of drivers and their families and numerous fleet executives and HTAA members dropped by the HTAA booth to find out what they can do to help drivers improve their health.

•     Healthy Trucking Executive GATS Kickoff Brunch – During the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, the HTAA once again hosted its popular Healthy Trucking Executive Brunch. Attended by hundreds of trucking industry leaders and executives and dozens of members of the trucking industry press, the annual brunch was a big success.

•     In-Terminal Flu and Pneumonia Shots – At the request of HTAA members, the HTAA now offers in-terminal flu shots. Call 800- 800-1198 to have HTAA flu shot clinics set up at your terminal or truck stop. The highly recommended pneumonia shot is also available.

•     ATA Safety and H.R. National Conference – The HTAA was on the road again in September, exhibiting at the Safety and H.R. Conference in Baltimore, MD.
